Usually ships within 1-3 days
John Philip Sousa personified the comparative innocence and brash energy of America around the turn of the 20th Century. Alongside the march that made him famous and later sparked a world-wide dance craze, The Washington Post, this disc includes excerpts from one of the earliest musicals to achieve Broadway success, El Capitan. With its origins reaching as far back as 1557, The Royal Artillery Band is one of the largest symphonic wind bands in the British Army. Keith Brion is a specialist in Sousa's period style and has published many performing editions of The March King's music.
